Once activated, why not try creating a personalized Photo Book(opens in a new tab or window) using pictures of your friends and family?

Design Insights

Design owners and team admins can now track engagement with their designs using the Insights tab in the top bar of the editor. You can keep track of total views using the free version of Canva, or get even more data with Canva Pro, which offers a daily timeline of unique views, and shows who has viewed your design.

Background Text Effects

Don’t let your text fade into the background. Create scroll-stopping designs with Background Text Effects and make sure your message stands out.

Adding links to your Canva designs is now easier than ever. Use the shortcuts Ctrl+K on PC or Cmd+K on Mac to add links without clicking away from the canvas.
